my one page vitae,
full vitae,
research statement, and
teaching statement.

I've been teaching astronomy, physics, and math since about 1990. Past institutions include UC Santa Cruz and the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. Currently I teach at Arizona State University and the MESA Summer Schools at UC Santa Barbara. I specialize in large introductory courses.

I've been teaching online only since 2009, with the courses coordinated by ASU Online and EdPLus. These days enrollments in "my" Solar Systems Astronomy and my Energy in Everyday Life courses are about 1000 students/course.

I am also the instructor for the largest college credit eligible astronomy course in the world. For the August 2015 initial offering my Solar Systems Astronomy course also became the first college credit eligible MOOC in the world. Enrollment in the initial offering was about 14,000 students. This course is part of the ASU + EdX Global Freshman Academy.
